My Afternoons with Margueritte

My Afternoons with Margueritte [2010] - Gerard Depardieu (as Germain Chazes) is paired with Gisèle Casadesus (as Margueritte) in a light comedy-drama about the the relationship between the 95 year old Marguerite (who is an avid reader) and Germain (who is virtually illiterate) a day-laborer with a difficult life and complicated relationships with his mother, girlfriend and his male companions who he meets regularly at a local bar.

A retired scientist, the frail Margueritte is highly cultured and likes to read out loud, and the illiterate Germain becomes her audience at a small park where they meet. His introduction to literature broadens his expectations about himself and his life and causes a revolution in his evaluation of his relationships.
